Council approves time, place for Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival

Local News

RICHMOND HILL, Ga. (WSAV) – The Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, canceled last year due to coronavirus concerns, could return this fall.

Tuesday night, Richmond Hill City Council approved the time and place for the festival — Oct. 15 through 17 at J.F. Gregory Park.

Council also approved the Richmond Hill-Bryan County Chamber of Commerce’s request to sell beer and wine at the festival on Friday and Saturday.

But officials say this is only the first step for the festival.

Over the summer, the chamber is expected to make the final decision on whether to move forward with the event. That decision could depend on Gov. Brian Kemp’s order regarding large gatherings.

Seafood lovers can keep an eye on the festival’s website for updates.
